Are you looking for new ideas for using summer melons?

Let this honeydew salad change your mind about fruit salad.

You know, those often boring (and tasteless) melanges of cubed melon and grapes served at every brunch buffet and grab-and-go deli stop in the land.

Really good summer honeydew is a beautiful thing, right up there with perfectly ripe, red watermelon in terms of sweet, juicy eating.

Like watermelon, honeydew melon becomes magical when it’s paired with salty feta cheese, as in the classic watermelon, feta and mint salad.

Just imagine it’s a hot, humid day, and a plate of cold, sliced honeydew melon appears.

Refreshment!

Now all you need to do is dress up that melon with a quick honey and vinegar dressing, along with some equally refreshing sliced cucumber, blueberries and fresh mint leaves.

It’s so easy to do it’s hardly a recipe, but it’s the simple combination of ingredients that makes this honeydew salad surprising.

This is miles away from an ordinary fruit salad, and it’s as delicious to eat as it is gorgeous to look at.

How to choose the perfect melon for honeydew salad:

Pale emerald-colored honeydews are a type of muskmelon, related to cantaloupes and other orange and green-fleshed melons.

Choosing a really good melon is the key to a simple and delicious salad. Here’s what to look for:

  • Take the sniff test: A good ripe melon should have a sweet, musky aroma.
  • Gently push on the blossom end of the melon (opposite from the stem end) — it should give to slight pressure.
  • Store a ripe melon at room temperature for a few days, and refrigerator a few hours before slicing and serving.
